Bug fix: include alias to object in "info methods -path"

Previously, it was not possible to define an alias to an object for

NaviServer, since it was not returned by "info methods -path" and

was therefore not included in the blueprint.

Extended regression test.

nx.tcl: pluralism reform part 3 - introduced simple plural form "mixins" and "filters" for introspection - moved differentiated interface into slot methods. the slot methods "get" stay symmetrically to "set", but additional methods "classes" or "methods" are used like "guard" to obtain partial results of the mixin and filter specs - changed info methods /cls/ info mixin classes -> /cls/ info mixins /cls/ info filter methods -> /cls/ info filters /obj/ info object mixin classes -> /obj/ info object mixins /obj/ info object filter methods -> /obj/ info object filters - dropped /cls/ info mixin guard /cls/ info filter guard /obj/ info object mixin guard /obj/ info object filter guard - added /cls/ mixin classes /cls/ filter methods /obj/ object filter methods /obj/ object mixin classes

nx.tcl: pluralism reform part 2 - changed methods /cls/ info subclass -> /cls/ info subclasses /cls/ info superclass -> /cls/ info superclasses /cls/ mixin ... -> /cls/ mixins /cls/ filter ... -> /cls/ filters /cls/ object mixin ... -> /cls/ object mixins /cls/ object filter ... -> /cls/ object filters - changed configure parameters /cls/ configure -mixin -> /cls/ configure -mixins /cls/ configure -filter -> /cls/ configure -filters /obj/ configure -object-mixin -> /obj/ configure -object-mixins /obj/ configure -object-filter -> /obj/ configure -object-filters - added handling for calling relationslot with unknown sub method

nx.tcl - drop short form "/obj/ info configure" for now - make output of "/obj/ info lookup configure syntax" equivalent to "/obj/ info configure"

nx.tcl - switch from "/obj/ info parameter" -> "nsf::parameter::get" to reduce potential semantic confusion of info options. "info parameter" was not object/class specific at all, but is just a syntax extractor

- enforce using "set" for filter/object-filter in slot operations (same as for mixins)

  1. … 10 more files in changeset.
nx.tcl: - add "set" as a method name for relation slots - implemented relation slot "mixin" and "object-mixin" via "slotassign" to disallow "/obj/ mixin /value/" and "/obj/ object mixin /value/" to use instead "/obj/ mixin set /value/" and "/obj/ object mixin set /value/" while keeping "configure" and "cget" working. This has the advantage that "/obj/ mixin set" does not try to replace the mixin chain by "set" - adapted regression test - TODO: check, if we need the explicit "slotassign"? isn't the presence of the slotObj sufficient? maybe "-forwardToSlot" in relationSlots? - TODO: demangle "slotassign" in "ObjectParameterSlot protected method getParameterOptions" and check interactions - TODO: to the same as -mixin and -object-mixin to -filter and -object-filter - TODO: clean up relation slot mixin variants - TODO: do we really like the fact that we have to write now "B mixin set M2" instead of "B mixin M2"? - TODO: should we disallow "B mixin" and enforce instead of "B mixin get" ? - TODO: we could as well allow "B mixin clear" instead of "B mixin set {}" - TODO: allow "set" for variable slots as well. Do we need "assign"?

nx::test: - change test cases to newer interface - don't use "namespace import nx::*" in test cases when not required

  1. … 34 more files in changeset.
nx.tcl: - replaced functionality of "/obj/ configure" by "/obj/ info configure" to re-enable semantics of the plain configure method, even when called without arguments. "/obj/ info configure" is actually a convenience method to allow to write o1 info configure instead of o1 info lookup configure syntax

package nx::class-method: - convenience package similar to nx::plain-object-method - allow for usage "C class method ..." in addition to "C object method". - made warnings configurable via nx::configure class-method-warning on|off - completed coverage and test cases

Method and configure parameter reform, Part 3: - added

/cls/ info lookup variables -> list of handles

/obj/ info lookup object variables -> list of handles

/obj/ info variable definition|name|parameter /handle/

- nx.tcl: added forward compatible scripted implementation of "lmap"

- nsf.c: handle names for private slots in pattern provided to AddSlotObjects(),

used e.g. in "info lookup slots /pattern/"

- dropped "/obj/ info slot definition /obj/" in favor of "/slotobj/ definition"

Method and configure parameter reform, Part 2: In order to streamline the interface further, we tried to follow the idea to use "... info /plural word/" to obtain a set of handles, and then a separate call to obtain the details. Therefore, we replaced

/cls/ info slot objects

/cls/ info slot definitions

/cls/ info slot names

/obj/ info object slot objects

/obj/ info object slot definitions

/obj/ info object slot names

/obj/ info lookup slots

by

/cls/ info slots ?-type /type/? ?-closure? ?-source all|application|baseclasses? ?/pattern/?

/obj/ info object slots ?-type /type/? ?/pattern/?

/obj/ info slot definition /obj/

/obj/ info lookup slots ?-type /type/? ?-source all|application|baseclasses? ?/pattern/?

- Method and configure parameter reform

/cls/ info configure parameters ?pattern? -> list of params

/cls/ info configure syntax -> syntax output

/obj/ info method parameters /methodName/ ?/pattern/? -> list of params

/obj/ info method syntax -> syntax output

/obj/ info lookup configure parameter ?/pattern/? -> list of params

/obj/ info lookup configure syntax -> syntax output

/cls/ info parameter list|name|syntax /param/ -> value

  1. … 14 more files in changeset.
- moved "/obj/ info slot definition|..." to "/obj/ info object slot definition|..." for consistency - provided "parametersyntax()" for "object mixin" and "object filter"

Object-method Reform: - changed interface to object specific commands by requiring an ensemble named "object". The rational behind is essentially to use always the same info command to retrieve object specific methods, no matter whether these are defined on a plain object or an a class object (does not break the "contract" what e.g. "info method" returns).

Now we define methods via:

/cls/ method foo {args} {...body...}

/cls/ object method foo {args} {...body...}

/obj/ object method foo {args} {...body...}

Similarly, aliases, forwards and mixins are defined, e.g.

/cls/ mixin add ...

/cls/ object mixin add ...

/obj/ object mixin add ...

/obj/ require object method ...

The same change propagated as well to the "info" method.

Now we have:

/cls/ info methods ...

/cls/ info object methods ...

/obj/ info object methods ...

Similar, the object parametererization uses

/cls/ create obj -object-mixin M

/cls/ create obj -object-filter f

/metacls/ create cls -mixin M1 -object-mixin M2

/metacls/ create cls -filter f1 -object-filter f2

- as a consequence,

a) "/cls/ class method ...",

"/cls/ class alias ...",

"/cls/ class forward ...",

"/cls/ class filter ...",

"/cls/ class mixin ...",

"/cls/ class info ..."

"/obj/ class method require method ..."

"/obj/ class method require public method ..."

"/obj/ class method require protected method ..."

"/obj/ class method require private method ..."

were dropped

b) "/obj/ method ....",

"/obj/ alias ....",

"/obj/ forward ...."

"/obj/ filter ...."

"/obj/ mixin ...."

"/obj/ info method*"

"/cls/ create obj -mixin M"

"/cls/ create obj -filter f"

"/obj/ method require method ..."

"/obj/ method require public method ..."

"/obj/ method require protected method ..."

"/obj/ method require private method ..."

were dropped

- added package nx::class to allow optionally the "class" notation

"/cls/ class method ..." (and friends, see (a)), and

"/cls/ class info ...

- added package nx::plain-object-method to allow optionally plain method

b) "/obj/ method ...." (and friends, see (b))

- add support to slots to use ensemble methods as setters
